Shari Arison

Shari Arison's third book Activate Your Goodness: Transforming the World Through Doing Good (March 2013), describes how doing good brings about positivity for yourself, those around you, and the world at large. In this book, Shari Arison is candid about her own personal stories and also provides examples from others who have made a difference by thinking, speaking and doing good.

The book inspires and empowers people, organizations and businesses to connect to goodness and do good deeds for the benefit of others.

Results of a nationwide survey conducted by GfK Custom Research, indicated among other findings that:

  • 4 out of 5 adult Americans (82%) would definitely / probably participate in a day out of the year dedicated to doing good deeds.
  • Half of adult Americans (52%) strongly agree that people coming together to do a good deed, one day out of the year, can make a difference to society.
  • 1 out of 3 adult Americans (32%) report doing a good deed for someone whom they did not know, in the past day.

Activate Your Goodness was launched in March at the 2013 Good Deeds Day kickoff event in Times Square. 900 people arrived at the venue, with more attending the book signing event organized by volunteering organization JumpStart. The American media embraced Shari Arison's book, which became an instant New York Times bestseller. It was translated into Hebrew and Arabic and became a bestseller in Israel upon its launching in August 2013, and also into more than 17 languages for publication in 48 countries around the world.
